Screenshot 2 under this album demonstrates this bug:

I've already determined an easy fix:
Switch from regular NSIS (2.46) to NSIS Unicode (2.46.5).
See screenshot 4 under that album.

Further justifications for switching to NSIS Unicode:
1. It appears to be better maintained.
2. Lots of major open source projects have switched to it.
3. If there does happen to be a bug, we can revert to regular NSIS
with almost no effort.*

regular NSIS:
(Yes 3.0b0 is out, but that is a beta release of 3.0, so I am not
bothering to try it. 3.0 was in alpha until 3.0b0 came out in May 11

NSIS Unicode:

*If the bug is caught after is released, we would call the
build All that would be required is to change the PATH
under nsis-builder.bat (buildscripts.git) to correct future builds,
edit the version string on x2goclient.nsi, and re-run the .nsi script.
On our X2Go-WinBuilder VM, we keep each release's binaries, ready to
be packaged up by the corresponding .nsi script, under:
D:\Build\windows\ .
